Today I will show you two new designs, I finished working on them about a week ago but could not find time to post about them.
I got the idea for the Redwork Biscornu in Russia when my friend Natasha and I were in a fabric store. There I saw pretty buttons and thought I must create a design with these buttons. Here is Redwork Biscornu, pretty in red and white:
I will probably keep my Redwork Biscornu with the collection of my red plates, they look great together.
If you are interested in buying my designs, beaded fobs or pins, please e-mail me. My address is in my Profile.
After the previous post I was asked to share a secret of sewing up my scissor fobs. I am afraid there is no secret, it's just practice: I have been sewing since I was about 5 years old. If I saw your fob or pillow, I would probably understand better what your problem is. I can give you some tips:
1. your seams must be straight, 2. clip corners before turning the pillow inside out,
3. do not be in a hurry and enjoy what you are doing. :-)
In the picture above I show a side and a corner of the fob. I first Back stitched and then Whip stitched it using one strand of DMC floss.

My Gracious Era has grown a little more:
I am a little late for TUSAL report but I want to show my box anyway. I have a good progress on the SAL thanks to making tassels for the biscornu.

I want to thank Holly for passing me two Blog awards. It's a great honor to get them from such a good stitcher. If you have not visited her blog yet, go and have a look at her amazing works http://indystitch.wordpress.com/.
Last week my husband and I twice visited Norton Art Gallery Park. Just a few days ago we found out that we have a rather pretty park not too far from us. At first we dropped at the park to see if it was worth visiting and in a day we came there again armed with two cameras and spent about 4 hours there. On the way back we also " ran" through the gallery just to have an idea of its exhibits, we will sure visit it again later.
I will leave you with the pictures we took in the park, enjoy them.
Happy stitching to everyone!
